    Woman dies after intervening in sword fight
    By Kevin O'Neal
    Posted: April 9, 2009

    A Northwestside fight involving a sword early this morning left three people stabbed, one of them dead and one under arrest for attempted murder.

    Christopher O. Rondeau, 39, is being held on preliminary murder charges at the medical holding facility at Wishard Memorial Hospital. He was arrested by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department after a fight at 5259 N. Raceway Rd. Rondeau was in stable condition.

    The fight was reported about 1 a.m. today. Rondeau and Adolf Stegbauer, 69, both of Indianapolis, were “actively involved in a sword fight,” IMPD spokesman Sgt. Matt Mount said in a statement. One man used what police described as a World War II Japanese officer’s sword and another had a thin blade sword, although investigators were not immediately certain which weapon was used by which man.

    Preliminary reports from police said that Franziska Stegbauer, 77, Indianapolis, tried to break up the fight and was fatally stabbed. Police found all three victims inside the residence on Raceway Road when they arrived early this morning.

    An autopsy performed today has determined that a stab wound from a sword was the cause of death.

    Adolf Stegbauer was taken to surgery at Wishard, and was reported in serious condition this afternoon.

    Police said Rondeau was Franziska Stegbauer’s grandson.

    Police do not know how the fight started or who stabbed Stegbauer, Mount said.
    Charges Filed in Swordfight Incident

    4/9/2009

    Indianapolis Metro Police say a 77-year-old woman who tried to break up a sword fight between her grandson and brother-in-law died of the stab wounds she sustained.

    Franziska Stegbauer was attempting to break up the fight between 69-year-old Adolf Stegbauer and 39-year-old Chris Rondeau in the 5200 block of North Raceway early Thursday morning.

    IMPD Sgt. Matt Mount says officials will wait for further tests to determine who delivered the fatal blow to the woman before making any arrests on murder charges.

    Rondeau has been arrested for attempted murder for the wounds he inflicted upon Adolf Stegbauer. Adolf remains in critical condition.

    Rondeau is being treated at Wishard Hospital in police custody.

    ok day for ninja wannabes

    bad ninja...
    Sword-waving ninja accused of attempted robbery
    19 hours ago

    WEYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Police say a man dressed liked a ninja used a sword in an attempt to rob a Weymouth dry cleaner. According to police, a convenience store clerk called police Monday after she noticed a man walking into the store wearing a ski mask and carrying a sword in a sheath on his belt. When the man noticed her, he pulled his mask off and asked if she was calling about him, police said.

    When she said she was, police said the man left the store and walked into nearby Galaxy Cleaners.

    There, police said he pointed a sword at the register and asked a clerk to give him all the money inside. Police said he left after she told him she couldn't open the drawer.

    Police still are searching for the man, who witnesses said appeared to be in his late 20s.

    Drunken 'sword fight' leaves one seriously injured in St. Lucie

    'Sword fight' leaves one seriously injured in Port St. Lucie

    Pictured is the sword used during an altercation Monday. The fight left one person seriously injured, while two others were treated at the scene and declined to be taken to the hospital.

    ST. LUCIE COUNTY — Two roommates were jailed following a Monday confrontation that involved an 18-inch sword and that sent a third person to a local hospital in serious condition, according to arrest reports released Tuesday and officials.

    William L. Luciano, 60, and his 48-year-old roommate, Patricia D. Best, were arrested following the attack that happened about 8 p.m. on Hidalgo Lane in the Spanish Lakes community east of U.S. 1 and south of Prima Vista Boulevard.

    A witness told St. Lucie County Sheriff’s investigators she saw Luciano “walking around outside swinging a sword and yelling at everyone,” an arrest report states.

    The victim’s mother reported seeing Luciano chasing her son out of a home. Luciano cut her son on the arm, and her son broke a dresser and used a piece of the dresser to defend himself.

    At least one other witness said Luciano hit the victim with a knife, which a sheriff’s official said was an 18-inch sword with a 13-inch blade, and that the victim defended himself with a broken dresser piece.

    Luciano, who was sprayed with pepper spray when he didn’t follow a deputy’s orders, said the victim was trying to hit Best and that he was defending her, reports stated.

    “Mr. Luciano told me he was the equalizer to (the victim) because (the victim) was six-foot-four,” a report states.

    Investigators said Best admitted hiding a sheath, and they found about a half ounce of marijuana in her room. Best denied knowing about the pot, but Luciano said it was hers, reports stated.

    All participants were drunk, according to authorities.

    Luciano faces charges including aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest without violence, while Best was arrested on charges including tampering with evidence, accessory after the fact, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

    The victim was taken to a local hospital in serious condition, a St. Lucie County Fire District spokeswoman said.

    Yoga Class Tackles Machete Wielding Purse Snatcher

    http://www.kauaiworld.com/articles/2...e841694890.txt

    LIHU‘E — Michael Cole, 29, of Kapa‘a, had a very bad day Friday.

    First, yoga students, unafraid of the machete he was carrying, tackled him in a Kalaheo yoga studio, thwarting his alleged attempt to snatch a purse.

    Then, after fleeing from the scene and police, hitting several vehicles and street signs, he ended up being the star of street theater for patrons at Olympic Cafe in Kapa‘a enjoying a late, birthday-celebration breakfast.

    Eyewitnesses said they saw seven Kaua‘i Police Department vehicles finally corner Cole, with many of the officers with shotguns drawn and aimed, while the arresting officers accidentally pulled down Cole’s pants as they cuffed him.

    Cole was arrested on first-degree robbery charges Friday morning following a police pursuit that started in Kalaheo and ended in Kapa‘a, according to a county news release.

    He was being held in the KPD cellblock.

    According to police, Cole entered a Kalaheo yoga studio with a machete in his hand at around 9:20 a.m. He was wearing sunglasses and his face was covered with rags.

    Cole grabbed a purse in the studio and attempted to leave, but several people in a yoga class tackled him and retrieved the purse.

    Leaving the purse behind, Cole exited the building, got into his vehicle and proceeded eastbound on Kaumuali‘i Highway.

    Police gave chase and, along the way, Cole collided with street signs and several vehicles.

    Cole finally came to a stop in Kapa‘a.

    Police are continuing their investigation.

    Cat Uses One of Nine Lives to Escape Another Sword Wielding Wannabe

    Lakeview man accused of attacking cat with sword charged
    by The Grand Rapids Press
    Thursday June 04, 2009, 5:57 PM

    Chad GregoryMONTCALM COUNTY -- A Lakeview man who prosecutors say tried to behead a cat with a sword is now facing an animal abuse charge.

    Chad Gregory, 31, of Lakeview, allegedly tried to kill the cat May 30 at his home.

    "Someone from where he lives called it in and said the guy was going after the cat," Montcalm County Prosecutor Andrea Krause said.

    Gregory allegedly chased the cat around the house with the weapon, but was unsuccessful in killing it, Krause said.

    The cat was cut on an ear, but otherwise is "going to be fine," Krause said.

    A judge set a $2,000 bond for Gregory, who is charged with attempted killing or torturing an animal, a two-year offense.

    His lawyer on Monday sought judicial permission for a psychiatric exam for Gregory to see if he is competent to stand trial. The exam may take several weeks to complete.

    wannabe knights

    The mayor even!
    Jousting match turns painful for Vt. mayor
    (AP) – 19 hours ago

    BARRE, Vt. — A Vermont mayor who agreed in fun to a jousting match with padded sticks and helmets ended up in the emergency room after he broke some ribs.

    Sunday's joust at a festival in Barre was a modern-day re-enactment of a fabled fist fight over the city's naming. Mayor Thomas Lauzon and Jeff Blow, chairman of the town's selectboard, teetered on padded pedestals in the middle of a ring as they wielded their jousting sticks.

    The Barre-Montpelier Times Argus reports Blow toppled Lauzon in less than 15 seconds and the mayor returned the favor with a below-the-belt thrust.

    In a deciding third match, Lauzon broke his ribs when he lunged toward Blow and slammed into his pedestal. The mayor's wife, Karen Lauzon, said Monday he's OK.
